Tattoos and Laser Tattoo Removal
You can be forgiven for thinking that tattooing is more of a modern fashion than anything else – in fact, it’s hard to avoid seeing people with tattoos on their body in society. As soon as some young adults hit eighteen years old, they decide to make the decision to permanently mark their skin with whatever design they think is cool at the time – perhaps some entirely random dragon triptych all over their back, or a culturally irrelevant scene of koi fish swimming up their arms in bright colours. As the colour fades and the design begins to blur together into unidentifiable goop, it’s likely that the bearer of the tattoo will begin to regret getting the art work complete. Not always, but especially for thoughtless spur of the moment tattoos, there is an element of regret that grows and grows as the skin ages, sags and fades.
Fortunately, tattoo removal is becoming more readily available, and as the technology improves the results are only getting better. What would originally leave you with a faded blue green smear on your skin is now a thing of the past – the experienced staff at the New Look Vein and Aesthetics Center, led by Dr. Krikorian, utilise the latest in tattoo removal technology to provide you with the results you are after.
At the New Look Vein and Aesthetics Center, the clinic utilises the latest and greatest technology in the form of the Astanza Revolution laser. This high tech laser guided equipment uses different and very specific wavelengths of light in order to break down as large a colour palette as possible. Past laser tattoo removal technology was only able to remove certain colours due to the wavelength limitation, creating the dull blue green smudgy results that many people may expect when it comes to tattoo removal. Dr. Krikorian and his staff provide a professional and honest service for laser tattoo removal, in which they will observe the tattoo you wish to have removed, note the colour and size of it, and give you an idea of possible results. The Astanza Revolution laser selectively targets different particles of ink under the skin, which burns away the ink without leaving the surround skin tissue with ugly scarring. This type of treatment is a breakthrough in tattoo removal – able to be used on all skin types, with very minimal side effects and a relative short healing process.
Whilst patients will typically require more than just one session, the laser tattoo removal procedures generally only take 15 to 30 minutes per appointment, spaced around six weeks apart. The amount of appointments you need will vary significantly depending on the size, location and age of the tattoo. During your consultation with Dr. Krikorian at the New Look Vein and Aesthetics Center, he will assess your tattoo and formulate a personalised procedure aimed at the unique features of your tattoo. After the treatment, the area will need to be protected for three days, after which only simple aftercare procedures need to be followed until your next appointment. The New Look Vein and Aesthetics Center provides a fundamental and complete tattoo removal service – find out more about the procedures availability today during a consultation.
